'Ayurveda' is a journey into the wisdom of being connected and in tune with Nature.

This is a longer, deeper and an enrichingly enhanced experience of the 'Journey into the Self a Weekend Retreat'.

Here is a retreat designed to bring you back to the SELF, which is being a part of Nature yourself.

The whole schedule will be designed and customised for you for where you are in your life.

With plenty of offerings, nourishing care and acres of greenery you will be able to find your space and quiet flowing through the day!

The Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat weekend will be a celebration of the SELF and a return to nature.

  • "I felt well taken care of at every moment during this retreat. Sashi and her helpers really make this retreat feel special. Every aspect was well thought through and facilitated with great care and dedication. The food was incredible, I felt so well nourished with wholesome seasonal, local food. I was inspired to make some changes to my cooking after I got home. The specialised, individual treatments and activities were incredible. I learnt so much about myself and about Ayurveda during this short weekend. I really felt the love that was put into this retreat, I felt so well-nourished in so many ways. Highly highly recommended."

  • "This was my first experience of an Ayurvedic retreat and it was an absolute treat!  We experienced several Ayurvedic practices and daily rituals which were individualised to our constitutions. We had yoga sessions which were therapeutic in nature and were given postures which could help our individual imbalances. Sashi is an exceptionally caring, nurturing and attentive clinician. She guided us to practices that we could consider incorporating into our daily routines which are very helpful to manage the daily stresses and strains of life.  The food was the highlight! Local, seasonal and freshly cooked- it was nourishing and warm. All in all, a highly restorative experience!"
